So, Susan and I loaded up the car and headed out about 8AM on Sunday morning.
We had a beautiful drive down interstate 80. We ate lunch at my favorite place on earth: Sheetz!
Continuing on, we hit the Ohio border (you Ohio people build really nice rest stops).
We stopped again for some fun at the Indiana signs:
At our dinner stop, we realized that we were across the street from Notre Dame Stadium parking. So, we drove to the campus and had a lovely walk after our dinner. The campus is beautiful! We especially enjoyed the church. No interior photos were taken because people were praying inside.
FINALLY, we hit Chicago:
And the next morning, I took a trip to the Chicago Art Institute! SO MUCH FUN!!! Impressionist paintings and mini rooms as well as a great view on the drive of Lake Michigan.
WHAT I WORE: Flip flops (easy to walk in); Michael Kors white shorts (two years old); Boston Proper Top (recent sale purchase); Sabika Soft Palette Necklace (best piece that I own); Chrysolite rhinestone earrings.
And for dinner, a special treat - my host family from the National Sweetheart Pageant in 1999 drove to eat with Susan and I at the Cheesecake Factory!!
